You probably read about some the world’s evergreen love stories; Romeo and Juliet, Paris and Helen of Troy as well as Samson and Delilah. Love hurts, but sometimes it feels good even with the pains.
This is the story of a man who didn’t kill for love but risked his life and those of other people to prove a point.
A 40-year-old man named Ruslan Nurtdinov, the “most romantic Russian ever,” dangerously drove his car through an airport terminal until he reached the departure gate.
The man was heading to a railway station located inside the airport.
Nurtdinov wasn’t fazed by the dangers of his action. He was far from realizing that he could have been shot by airport security or worse still, crashed into planes.
An official statement from the Kazan airport management said the Russian driver was drunk as he rammed his car through the terminal’s door and drove around inside until he got to the departure gate.
Nurtdinov, who was driving a Russian car, destroyed the check-in counter before finding his way to the terminal, a viral online video showed.
According to Kazansky Reporter, a news website, Nurtdinov was arraigned in court last weekend. He confessed that his route for the risky adventure was carefully planned.
His main motive for the dangerous game was “love”.
In his words: “I had to get on the platform. I was fighting for love!”
Nurtdinov told prosecutors that his lady friend just landed at the airport and he had to give her a surprise welcome.
The report confirms no one was hurt in the incident.
